I want to be the best version of myself I can be.
A mistake I make at least twice a year is getting so wrapped up in things like outcomes and returns—the results of “being my best self”—that I end up trying to be someone else.
It’s like I look to add all the right extra pieces in order to assure the biggest payoff.
I spend money, make plans, join groups, change schedules…
What I keep having to learn over and over is to trust what I actually am.
Whenever I return to the real me in that way, it’s like releasing a weight and being lifted by the wind to float along in natural freedom.
I can’t say I won’t make the same mistake again (having just returned from making it again over the last few weeks).
But I’m sure I’ll enjoy proving myself to myself all over, and letting go.
